Natural Environment plans and strategies

Our natural environment, including bushland, open spaces, the Swan Valley and the Swan River, is extremely important to us. Through the delivery of our plans and strategies, we are working hard to achieve our goals: 

  • Lowering our greenhouse gas emissions, conserving water, increasing tree canopy and protecting biodiversity 
  • Reducing our volume of waste through reduction, re-use and recycling waste products to ensure we provide the cleanest environment possible for our community and natural assets 
  • Delivering on our actions in place to ensure a sustainable natural environment so our future generations can thrive.
